Dental Bridges
Bridges replace one or more missing teeth, in a segment of the mouth. They consist of an artificial tooth/teeth attached to crowns on the teeth on each side of the gap. If a tooth is lost a bridge may be the treatment of choice. The bridge treatment requires two appointments. The first appointment will be approximately 1 ½ hours. The second appointment will follow after approximately 3-4 weeks, and be approximately 30 minutes. These times may vary depending on the number of teeth involved and the complexity of treatment needed. Two weeks after bridge insertion a review appointment will be required.
 
Dental Crowns
The crown treatment requires two appointments. The first appointment will be approximately 1 and a ½ hours. The second appointment will be approximately 30 minutes. These times may vary depending on the number of crowns and the complexity of treatment needed. Two weeks after crown insertion, a review appointment is generally required (this is included in the fee for your crown).
 
Dental Implants
A dental implant can be used when a single tooth or multiple teeth are missing. The implant itself is a small titanium post which acts like the root of a tooth to support tooth replacements. Dental implants are the closest we can get to a natural tooth with today’s technology.
 
Dentist Consultation
 
Dentures
Dentures, also known as false teeth, are removable prostheses that can be used to replace a full arch of missing teeth or just a few missing teeth.
 
Teeth Whitening
 
Home Whitening Kits
There are many different types of dental bleaching, at Canberra Prosthodontics we offer “take home” bleaching. This requires 2 short appointments, often with our dental hygienist. 1st appointment is to take a quick impression that will be used to make your customised bleaching tray. 2nd appointment is to issue your bleaching kit, this will contain your custom bleaching trays, enough bleach to get through the initial bleaching treatment, some sensitive toothpaste and an information sheet. We suggest that you bleach for approximately 14 days, for 1-2 hours a day. If you are bleaching before undergoing any restorative dentistry, you will need to finish bleaching before you commence treatment, as any restorations placed will not change with continued bleaching. It is a good idea to keep your bleaching trays as you will notice your natural teeth may discolour over time, when you notice this you can “top up” by bleaching for a few days.
 
TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint Treatment
Generally, these conditions are a result of some injury to the muscles or joints of the face. This may be due to direct trauma, such as a blow to the jaw or being in a sporting or car accident. It can also be due to overloading of the muscles and joints from unconscious habits that we may practice. These are generally related to clenching or grinding our teeth, although some other activities that require us to use our jaw joints and facial muscles can also cause problems. Examples of these include scuba-diving or playing musical instruments like the clarinet or violin. Neck and shoulder problems can also contribute to facial pain, either indirectly through promoting excessive muscle activity, or via pain referred to sites in the face.
 
Veneers
Veneers are used to improve the shape and/or colour of your front teeth. They are a bit like false finger nails although they are surprisingly stong once bonded to the underlying tooth enamel. There are two types of veneers, composite resin (tooth coloured filling material) or porcelain. Composite resin veneers will eventually require replacement as they wear down and become discoloured in time. Porcelain veneers look nicer and will last much longer than composite resin veneers.
 
Composite Veneers
To have composite resin veneers you will only require one appointment. Your dentist will use a tooth coloured filling material that is bonded to the front of your teeth, to change the shade and/or shape. Generally no trimming of the teeth is required however this may be necessary for darkly stained or very crooked teeth so that the final veneer is not too thick.
 
Porcelain Veneers
1st appointment – Preparation for Veneer – At this appointment your dentist will take a quick impression of your teeth as they are, this will be used to make temporary veneers to wear while your porcelain veneers are being made by our technician. Your dentist will then numb the teeth before shaving approximately 1mm off the front of your teeth. After this a very accurate impression will be taken of the prepared teeth, this is the impression that the technician uses to make your final porcelain veneer. The temporary veneers may be made and cemented in place with temporary cement, this will be decided on a case by case basis. You will need to be careful when chewing on your temporary veneers to prevent them from falling off. 2nd appointment – Insert Final Veneer – At this appointment your dentist will remove your temporary veneer and clean the surface of your tooth. Using a mild adhesive paste your dentist will fit your veneer on to check the fit, colour and shape, when you are both happy with the new veneer it will be permanently cemented in place. Your dentist may request that you return for a review appointment in two to four weeks.
